Author Guidelines

A typical Workplace issue consists of feature, thematic articles (10-30 pages print, including images), other essays as relevant, and book reviews. Please browse recent issues to get a sense of the style and substance.

Workplace is generally based on Special Issues and Calls for Papers focusing on a theme. About 12 months before a new issue, Guest Editors develop a plan for soliciting (by open CFP or direct requests) about 5-6 articles, together with a concept for shorter essays. The Guest Editor/s and the Collective review the plan and sometimes make suggestions. The issue is then in the Guest Editors' hands until about six weeks prior to the launch date.

Format Guidelines for Workplace:
Include a title page, with name/s, institutional affiliation, email address, and mailing address.Double-space the document throughout. Style and references should be in APA, Chicago or MLA format.Notes should be in endnote form. Any appendices or tables should also be saved in the same document. Manuscript Submission Guidelines:

  • Login or create a user account (be sure to check the "author" checkbox when creating an account.
  • Proceed through the Five Step Submission process.
  • Manuscripts will be reviewed within a reasonable amount of time.
